massive plan to move water from the sacramento river to southern california. >> we have farmers, fish, environmentalists, citizens, and we need to make it work somehow. i want to get it done and i want to get this thing done the best i can >> along with the fed see is proposing a 35 mi. long twin tunnel from the sacramento river to tracy with the idea to send water to homes in l.a. and farmers in the central valley. >> it also calls for the restoration of delta habitats >> the estimated price tag is about $23 million or more. this morning we sat down with a skeptic who is the assistant manager of the contra costa water district will really be affected by this. i asked him how this plan
differs from the peripheral canal that was proposed and blocked in the 1980's. >> that was 25,000 cubic foot per second canal that would do the same thing taking water from the north to the south. this morning, the flow in the sacramento river is about 21,000 cubic feet per second. reposal is to use tunnel's instead of a canal and go under the delta and 9000 cubic feet per second so it is considerably size down but the most important thing about the plan is how it would be operated and that is unspecified. we don't know how would be operated, we don't know yet what the water supply benefit to southern california is. the current plan could even give them less water than they get now which makes you wonder why they would spend 15 or $20 million to get less water so they don't have the certainty that they wanted when they started the plan six years ago. there are a lot of unknowns
about this. >> is it smart to be giving our water to people for their lawn and swimming pools? that is what irritates people >> it does, but i would like to remind people in the bay area that while the metropolitan water district in southern california takes about 1.5 million a. per feet out of the delta, the bay area takes about the same amount so we are both doing the same thing. >> the second part, water is so volatile, it is gold in california. we don't want to give it away. the other thing is the question of how it will affect the delta because the delta already has salt water flowed into it, our build up around it has endangered fish, and it depends on fresh water coming in from
the sacramento river. if you start diverting that water, what affect will have? >> that is the problem, studies show that it will increase salinity in the delta which affects us. we have recently written a letter to the secretary alerting him to the fact that there are preliminary documents that have ignored that and we're very concerned that the environmental documents coming out fully disclose impact on the contra costa water district and felipe mitigate them. what they've done so far is essentially not disclose them and proposed mitigation that has more studies and that is just long >> it was fascinating when the governor unveiled his plan, he said we would build to a 35 mi. long tunnels, these are bigger than the caldecott tunnel, this is a massive undertaking and they don't even have it penciled out completely with the cost >> that is part of the problem, if everybody agreed on this
today it would take them two or three years to get going and then seven years to build it so the best case scenario is 10 years away. in the meantime we have not solved any of the problems in the delta. there is finally a coalition of water users that depend on the delta working together to try to get levee protection going, projects that will help the delta today because even if this were to solve all the problems, it is 10 years away and we don't have to in years. >> who pays for this? >> the water users to get the water say they will pay for it although if you read carefully, their reactions to the governor's announcement, they are backing off a little bit saying it is great that the governor did this but we want to see what we will get before we sign on. if they're going to pay, they want to know what they will get. >> and we want to know what we will lose. >> coming up, more groups
>> a budget surplus for state parks has allot of nonprofit groups fuming. one group to raise $55,000 to save annabel state park says it feels betrayed >> we're really profoundly disappointed that so much effort would be gone on a closure process over a few years only to find that, you know, it was like, we're just kidding >> the group is working on filing requests to get their money back and they want to give it to the sonoma county regional parks instead, which is taking control of animal park. gov. brown's administration took a big hit from the scandals
>> we learned to lt. gov. gavin newsom and former mayor willie brown, the first question is the discovery of that money, does it lead to questions about the credibility of the budget process? >> keep in mind, in spite of the fact that you had that kind of thing surface, you did not see a quote directly from jerry brown anywhere. we've been talking about the surrogates' doing old dance and now we the public reference jerry brown but believe me, in terms of the delivery system, jerry brown is out there with us criticize are so >> but you know you have money out there >> the difference is that the money was not spent, it was saved. it is counter to what we're used to. we were asking the private sector to step up so it is a difference, no one stole any money >> put the idea it was saved
away and people were out there contributing their money and then to turn around and go you have this money and you're asking us for money, i'm not saying it was criminal but it is a pr nightmare >> the question is is every special fund similarly audited or inaccurately reported? >> probably >> let me just say this, there are special funds that exist, i hate to break it but there have not been this kind of surplus. when you put budgets together there are special funds that are there when you need them that the executive branch is quite familiar with at times when you need them the most >> as mayor turnaround and go, it you have this in and you didn't tell me about it? >> it happened with my homeless fund at the end of my administration. >> all of a sudden this money
